All About the Race to Dubai, lines and Odss

The Race to Dubai is the season-long points race on the DP World Tour, previously known as the European Tour, culminating with the DP World Tour Championship played in Dubai during November.

In 2021, Collin Morikawa became the first American player to win the award following his victory in the DP World Tour Championship despite playing in only three standalone DP World Tour events.

Points are accumulated by playing DP World Tour events, as well as the four major championships and World Golf Championship (WGC) tournaments which are also jointly sanctioned by the PGA Tour. Those joint events also award FedEx Cup points, the PGA Tour’s similar competition, so a player can finish well and even win both titles in the same season.

One of the purposes of the Race to Dubai, formerly called the Order of Merit, was to give players an incentive to play in DP World Tour events to bolster their fields as more international players opted to spend more time on the more lucrative and competitive PGA Tour.

By allowing points to be earned in the joint events, which also award an elevated amount, it diminishes the need for players to have to compete in as many purely DP World Tour contests to move up in the standings.

Most DP World Tour events award the winner between 2000 and 3000 points, with lesser totals to other finishers. However, major championships and the DP World Tour Championship are worth 10,000 points for the winner, while a player receives 8,000 points for winning a WGC event or one of four other designated DP World Tour events.

In 2013, Henrik Stenson became the first golfer to win the FedEx Cup and the Race to Dubai in the same season.

Morikawa had a similar shot at collecting both trophies and cash bonuses that go along with them, but after leading the FedEx Cup point standings heading into the playoffs, he faltered down the stretch, eventually finishing in a tie for 26th.

Race to Dubai FAQs

A: Yes, Golf Odds and wagers are available for the Race to Dubai at BetUS. In many ways, the Race to Dubai creates more interest internationally than in the United States because of the number of players from around the globe who participate on the DP World Tour.

A: The most prevalent Race to Dubai Golf Odds are futures, which allow bettors to wager on who they think will prevail following the DP World Tour Championship. The odds are expressed in positive numbers that reflect the betting return on a $100 wager.

For example, if Viktor Hovland has Golf Odds of +900 to win the Race to Dubai, it means that a winning $100 wager on the young Norwegian would net $900 in winnings.

If Rory McIlroy, a frequent favorite to win the Race to Dubai throughout his career, has odds of -180, it would take a $180 bet to return net winnings of $100.

Those kinds of odds wouldn’t generally be seen, however, until very late in the season, perhaps not even until the DP World Tour Championship is in progress.

A: You can bet on the Race to Dubai by clicking on the “Sportsbook” link at the top of the BetUS website. From there, click on “Golf” on the left side of the page and scroll down to “Race to Dubai”.

A: You can bet on the Race to Dubai by clicking on the “Sportsbook” link at the top of the BetUS website. From there, click on “Golf” on the left side of the page and scroll down to “Race to Dubai”.

A: When it comes to a wagering strategy, placing a large wager on a single player to win the Race to Dubai may provide a nice payout, but is also very risky given the number of golfers who have a legitimate opportunity to win the title.

Usually, the favorite has odds of about +400, which translates to a 4 to 1 return, so picking two or three golfers can still end up in a nice payout for a winning wager.

Since the Golf Odds for the Race to Dubai change as the season progresses, it’s also a good idea to periodically check one or more sportsbooks to see if more attractive wagers are available.

A: The odds for the Race to Dubai are usually set initially before the beginning of the DP World Tour season. They are typically changed at least following each tournament, if not more frequently, depending on wagering activity and news about individual players, such as injury or other issues.

The early odds are generally just for who will collect the most points by the end of the season, which concludes with the DP World Tour Championship and the 10,000 points that come with a victory.

Some sportsbooks may also offer Golf Odds and where a player may finish in the final Race to Dubai standings, possibly allowing wagers on a top five or top ten finish.

Unlike the futures odds to win, these may end up being negative odds, especially for players who can qualify for the four majors and the WGC events, enabling them to maximize their point potential by getting a shot at all or most of the high point tournaments.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
  • Fill in the amount and confirm your wager (the system will not allow you a higher amount than what is available)
